We came here to eat after it was recommended to us by people where we were staying in Chesterfield. I'm very glad we did - it was fantastic! There is a small car park round the back where there is also some outdoor seating. We sat in the restaurant area of the bar. The choice of real ales and ciders... More

My partner and I stayed at the Poets last weekend, the room was comfortable and clean with fresh towels each day. The food was very good, but each time we ate there we failed to finish the main course as there was far too much and I think the management is perhaps missing a trick here as we would probably...

A spur of the moment.been planning to visit for a while. Not disappointed. A really nice place with a great atmosphere. Superb food..the mix grill is not for the faint hearted. Perfect beer..an excellent ambassador for real ale. Excellent cider choice. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Definitely will be going back and staying over.

A friend and I stopped for two nights; I cannot speak too highly of the pub, it is fantastic. The room was excellent and we got a discount as CAMRA members. The food is superb and the beer cannot be bettered, especially that brewed just across the back yard of the pub! We'll certainly be stopping there again (we were... More

We have been coming to the Poets for years when in the area and it never disappoints. I had the obligatory 10oz Fish and Chips and my wife had the chilly then sticky toffee pudding all of which were faultless. Given the 10 ales on tap I took advantage of the beer tapas to get my aim before getting stuck... More

Another trip to the Poets and another great weekend. Fabulous walking routes from right outside the door giving a range of different types of walk, including great views and beautiful countryside. The ale selection was perfect again, with a range of strengths and styles and all in great condition. Tried a couple of ciders as well, which were also excellent.... More

We arrived from Devon to spend a few days with friends whom we had not seen for a few years. In the course of our stay we made many more friends and experienced instances of the heavens and the hells of walks in the hills! But we slept well, drank well and ate well in the finest little village this... More

My sister, brother-in-law, husband and myself spent four days at the OPC and were very impressed. The food was excellent, the choice of ales extensive and the rooms clean and comfortable. It was our second visit and we wouldn't hesitate in going back again and would recommend it to friends and family.

We stayed for two nights at the beginning of May with our chocolate Labrador and received a warm welcome. The room was extremely clean and comfortable and we were able to take our dog down to breakfast with us. Breakfast was a large full English which was cooked to perfection. Everything about this place is lovely, the pub itself, the... More

I decided to get away for a couple of days and when my copy of "What's Brewing" dropped through my letterbox I found the OPC inside the back page. I decided to try it as I don't like travelling far and it's only 16 miles away. I live in Mansfield but it is too far to visit and drive home... More
